Ignatian Spirituality - General Principles

General Principles

Ignatian spirituality can be, and has been, described as a spirituality of decision making. The Ignatian process of making good decisions acknowledges that decisions are often between two goods, understanding that the better good, or 'the more' (lat. magis), is what we instinctively want, and what God wants for us. Formation in Ignatian orders (including the Jesuits), is a formation for mission, for those who have decided, during or after a 'long' retreat, that they want to, as Ignatius put it, 'lay aside worldly armour and put on that of Christ.' 'In all things, to love and to serve' (EspaƱol: 'en todo amar y servir' ) was a motto of St Ignatius, who wanted to 'be like St Francis and St Dominic', though better. (Competitive spirit features quite strongly in Ignatian spirituality)
